My daughter is 11 and about 15 lbs overweight. For the past 4 days an hour or so after she eats she is screaming and crying in pain. She says her stomach hurts, I ask her to describe the pain she says it feels like a burning and stabbing. We went to the hospital, they did blood and urine tests. She has no infection, its not her apendex, I suggested an ulcer, the Dr looked at me like I was nuts. An hour after she gets the pain it goes away as quick as it came, and then she is fine till the next time she eats. Can anyone help me??

  • If you haven't already done so, I would have her checked by a pancreatic specialist. If that turns out to be negative, I'd go to a good pediatric gastro specialist. They will check her stool samples, and could find a parasite that is easily treated. Good luck!

  • You might want to get her gall bladder checked -- sounds like what happened to a friend of mine when she was in college. With all the extra junk that's in food these days, and with the hormones animals are fed, it's no surprise that even kids are getting digestive problems. Good luck!-Amanda

  • Hi. I was diagnosed a year ago with a bacteria in my stomach called H-Pylori. It made my stomach hurt alot. It would hurt after eating mostly. They thought it might be that my digestive system was not working properly. It is more common than people realize.... you can get it from a lot of different things. I had to go on a round of strong antibiotics for two weeks. (3000 mg. 3 times a day) I hope you find out what is wrong. I know after I had it they thought maybe my daughter had it also. I had to had a scope done & they took a sample a biopsy. I heard they could test for it through blood and stool sample. I had to be rechecked with the latter one. Good luck.
